It is only after she does it—the whisper of steel being unsheathed echoing around the Great Hall—that she realizes she’s moved.
Arya cannot bring herself to care.
Littlefinger is dead and only then Sansa seems to breathe easily – for a moment, at last. Something else troubles her sister and Arya doesn’t like it, likes it even less when she knows not what it is and therefore is unable to help.
Sansa still keeps much too close to her heart; Bran says she’s still learning to open up, after everything. Open up with them—her—she thinks, because she’d done it with Jon already.
Arya takes the first step because she can’t stand not knowing, because Sansa is her sister and she should not have to carry this burden alone—we’re a pack now, she thinks, we protect each other. She does it because she can’t quite take seeing her fidget with her embroidery, tapping her fingers nervously on the wooden desk as she stares aimlessly around her solar—and she remembers: Mother and her fidgeting when she was worried and Father and his aimless stare when solutions could not be easily found.
